Pacific Office Automation – Why Work For Us?

Pacific Office Automation started in 1976 in Portland, Oregon, selling copy machines. Thirty-eight years later, we are a recognized leader in office management solutions, offering state-of-the-art technology and award-winning customer service that has helped us grow to 25 offices throughout Oregon, Washington, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and Colorado.

We are the largest private dealership in the nation, and one of the world’s largest dealers for Konica Minolta copiers, printers, faxes and multifunctional devices. Yet our focus remains local.

We are a company with deep roots in the West, employing 750+ hard-working men and women. Our local focus extends beyond the corporate hallways. We are dedicated to supporting the communities in which we operate, including many philanthropic efforts to support academics and athletics.


At Pacific Office Automation, our motto is: “Problem solved.” That means providing custom office solutions that are fast, efficient and secure. The result: a connected and highly productive office that is free to thrive, whether it’s a one-man shop that wants document management advice or a Fortune 500 company concerned with network security.

Helping our customers improve workflow is just the first rung on the ladder. We partner each client with one dedicated engineer and technician who will be there each step of the way, from implementation to continued support. We believe in the adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

A close partnership, coupled with sophisticated reporting systems that monitor our equipment daily, help us prevent problems before they can interrupt workflow. We house a huge inventory of parts and supplies in each of our locations, and our online system allows clients to order parts from anywhere, anytime.

Pacific Office Automation’s highly trained technicians provide fast service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Let us solve your office problem today.


A Green Approach to Data Management

At Pacific Office Automation, we believe in the triple bottom line: profitpeople and planet.

We know sustainability is top of mind for our customers as well. As part of our service, we offer organizations a complete environmental impact assessment and solutions to reduce their carbon footprint.

Thanks to enhanced technology, machines are doing more with less energy. An all-in-one copier, printer and fax machine provides three functions from one power source. In fact, all Pacific Office Automation equipment meets or exceeds Energy Star compliance standards.

Additionally, a good records management system not only improves workflow and provides data security; it is a cost-effective way to reduce paper waste. Gone are the days when incoming faxes transmit onto paper and customer orders must be copied multiple times. Now, those documents can be captured, distributed and stored electronically rather than end up in the shredder or recycling bin.

We recognize the environmental impact of these devices is greater than their daily functions. From the manufacture of the machines to the chemicals they use to their after-life, there are a plethora of environmental concerns. We partner only with manufacturers that take sustainability as seriously as we do. Our partners are dedicated to reducing greenhouse gases and preventing chemical pollution in the manufacture, shipping and recycling of their products.

When it comes to sustainability, we walk the talk. Pacific Office Automation recycles 99 percent or more of unwanted machines, toner and cardboard. Our drivers and technicians always remove waste products after setup for recycling. We also make it easy for our customers to recycle toner cartridges, with environmentally safe packaging and return shipping labels to send toner back to the manufacturers for recycling.


Join our Hardworking, Fast-Growing Team

Pacific Office Automation grew from one office to 25 locations throughout Oregon, Washington, California, Arizona, Utah and New Mexico thanks to a deep dedication to customer service.

Simply put, we work harder than our competition. That’s why Pacific Office Automation ranks nationally among the top dealers for Sharp, Toshiba, Canon and Ricoh devices, and why we rank as Konica Minolta’s top North American dealer.

We work hard for our customers, and we listen to our customers. Pacific Office Automation receives positive feedback from more than 98 percent of respondents on customer service surveys. We utilize that feedback to help guide our decision-making processes.

Just as we aim to help our customers grow their business through technology, we offer our own employees growth opportunities to reach their career goals. Among our company goals, we aim to be a long-term employer. That means providing our team with the training and certification they need to keep up with the fast-changing technology our office machines, devices and software employ.

Our technical staff has an average of 12 years’ experience working on high-volume machines. We aim to remain a profitable company with year-over-year growth.

At the same time, Pacific Office Automation is a company with a local focus. Each of our offices retains local decision-making, dispatch and distribution. We believe that each customer has specific service needs, and they need a partner. A local approach is paramount in forming that strong partnership.

We work hard to support the communities in which we live and work. Whether it is a continuing legal education seminar, a Boys & Girls Clubs event or an auction to benefit advocacy for children, Pacific Office Automation is proud to assist our communities through corporate philanthropy and volunteer hours.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Pacific Office Automation.


    Applied for the position online, and I received a call the next day. Went in for an interview the very next day. HR person was nice to talk to, and we had about a 30 minute interview.

    Interviewed with one of the IT managers. He seemed a little dis-interested, yawned a few times during the interview, seemed more interested in waving "bye-bye" to some of the employees who were leaving for the day. Was told to complete the personality test and then submit my signed authorization for a background and credit check.

    Didn't hear anything back for over a week so I called and left a voice mail for the HR person. She called me back later to inform me they elected to go with a different candidate.
